Pretty much everyone Poe ever knew/loved died of TB (his real mother, his adopted mother, his wife/cousin, ext.)

Actually, the only deaths due to TB that I am aware of are real mother Elizabeth and his wife/cousin, Virginia.

In actuality, if Poe was able to provide his wife with food, appropriate shelter, and medical attention, his wife probably would not have died at the time she did.
